Our learning this term
This term in English our focus is Knights and Castles. We will be looking at instruction writing, stories and diary entries. We are trying to master changing verbs to the past tense, e.g. hop to hopped. In our curriculum lessons, our focus is Remembrance. We will be looking at changes from WW1 to modern day. We will also be looking at artwork involving poppies. In Maths, we are focusing on counting in 2’s, 5’s and 10’s and linking this to our times table knowledge. Any work with this at home would be greatly appreciated. We will also be focusing on consolidating our number bonds.
Key information for Year 2

Our PE day is every Monday. Children must come to school in their PE Kit. Their kit should include black tracksuit bottoms, trainers, coloured PE top and PE jumper. Shorts are allowed but please keep in mind the weather. Please ensure your child does not wear earrings to school on PE days.
Keeping involved at home
A fantastic way to support your child at home is through daily reading. This could be a few pages, leaflets, posters or even a magazine. Children are sent home which match their phonics and comprehension reading level. Please can all reading be recorded daily in the children’s contact books.
Mathletics, TTRockstars and Teams
For Home Learning, the children will be completing their work online. Every Monday the children will be assigned a task on Mathletics.
